Brief insights

“Give me a man or woman who has read a thousand books and you give me an interesting companion. Give me a man or woman who has read perhaps three and you give me a very dangerous enemy indeed.”~Anne Rice

“There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves.”~Thomas Wolfe

“I know some who are constantly drunk on books as other men are drunk on whiskey.”~H.L. Mencken

“...bookstores, libraries... they're the closest thing I have to a church.” ~Jim C.Hines

“Books are everywhere; and always the same sense of adventure fills us. Second-hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack. Besides, in this random miscellaneous company we may rub against some complete stranger who will, with luck, turn into the best friend we have in the world.” ~Virginia Woolf
